Description

Available with either Hz/Volt or Volt/Oct CV input

This socket upgrade kit is built to order after your payment has been processed. It then takes us up to 10 working days to build and test the kit before we can despatch it.

PLEASE NOTE: Fitting a socket upgrade kit is a skilled job which should be undertaken only by an experienced synth service engineer or fitted by us at our premises in Epsom.

Hz/Volt

Kit to add CV / Gate / Filter sockets to the SX-1000. This is the Hz/V version of the kit, meaning that the CV input of the kit is Hz/V. This version of the kit is suitable for use with all current models of Kenton converter and is a little cheaper than the Volt per Octave version. If you are planning to use this with a Pro-4 or Pro-2, or a converter by another manufacturer, check that it has the ability to give a CV output with Hz/V scaling.

When used in conjunction with one of our MIDI to CV converters, such as the Pro-Solo mk3, USB-Solo or Pro-2000 mkII, these three additional sockets will enable the synth to be played from a MIDI keyboard or MIDI sequencer.

The inputs are on 3.5mm mono jack sockets which provide the following control:
CV – provides Hz/V control over the oscillator frequency
Gate – controls when notes play (0 volts = note off / >3 volts = note on)
Filter – controls the cutoff frequency of the low pass filter (from aux out of converter)

The kit contains a circuit board, and all necessary components and diagrams for connecting the wires / components, and mounting the three 3.5mm mono jack sockets and switch.

Used with a Pro-Solo mk3 or Pro-2000 mkII this kit will give you the following control over the synth from a suitable MIDI keyboard or sequencer:

Notes – at least 5 octaves range – (this is not limited by the kit or converter, but by the synth itself)
Pitchbend – range can be set in the converter
Modulation – from converter’s inbuilt LFO. Speed and waveshape can be changed in real time.
Portamento (slide) – rate can be changed in real time.
Filter cutoff frequency – can be controlled using any continuous MIDI controller (cc) or other MIDI message such as Aftertouch or Velocity
Low / High / Recent note priority – can be set in the converter
Single / Multiple note trigger modes – can be set in the converter

See the specifications of the Pro-Solo mk3, USB-Solo or Pro-2000 mkIII for further features.


Volt/Oct

 

Kit to add CV / Gate / Filter sockets to the SX-1000. This is the Volt per Octave version of the kit, meaning that the CV input of the kit is Volt per Octave. Another version of the kit is available with Hz/V input which is suitable for use with all current models of Kenton converter and is a little cheaper than this version.
